My self-summary
I'm a guy with two hands, two feet, two butt cheeks, evenly shaped face, so you know - roughly symmetrical at all times, the major exception being my hair. It's pretty nice hair.
What I’m doing with my life
Ever since I moved to Portland from somewhere else, I've found myself drawn in to the bro-ey vortex of working a tech job that pays too much, contributes too little, affords me a lifestyle and status that I can't manage and will never live up to, and separates me from the creative identity that I'd spent decades shaping out of the skinny clay of that kid I used to be. I'm the person who's raising the rent here, and I'm sorry about it, but mostly for selfish reasons.
I’m really good at
- playing in a cool band and then quitting and ruining everything (Sorry Bryant! Love ya!)
- this video thingy that I shoot in my basement with musicians that comes out really nice because nice people keep showing up:
- architecting log aggregation infrastructure in a federal agency environment according to industry best practices while taking into account licensing, confidential information requirements, NERC/CIP (it's a DoE thing, don't worry about it), and office politics. I get a cubicle next to a window.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Heart of Darkness, Jurassic Park, The Satanic Verses, Lord of the Rings, A Confederacy of Dunces, that poetry book that Jewel put out, and shit by Tom Robbins.

Aesop Rock, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Darwin Deez, Elvis Costello, Heatmiser, The Hold Steady, Father John Misty, Lykke Li, Sufjan Stevens, Ryan Adams, Sleigh Bells
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You swing your arms in rhythm because your reptile brain still thinks you're on all fours
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably grocery shopping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get called "condescending" a lot, but I don't really know what that means
You should message me if
You want to play through Secret of Mana with me

You find my long-winded sentences about my drab life inexplicably charming

You want to ask me about Antarctica, I guess
The two of us
